I joined Aston Optometry School in April 2019 following completion of a three-year BBSRC-funded postdoctoral position at the University of Bradford. Prior to that I successfully completed my PhD in Vision Science (2012-2015) at the University of Bradford, and my BSc (Hons) in Psychology (2009-2012) at the University of York.
My research interests encompass visual perception, but I have a particular passion for motion perception and how MT/TO-1 and MST/TO-2 in the human brain process these signals.
In my spare time I am a freelance medical illustrator and enjoy contributing to the continuing education and training (CET) of Optometrists and eyecare professionals.
